    By Arturo R. García Well now this is interesting. As Variety reported on Tuesday, the demand for a new Static Shock revival will finally be met, in perhaps the most unexpected of fashions: an online-only live-action series. It’s also encouraging to see the revival of Milestone Entertainment’s signature character is being led by Milestone alumni: Film and comics veteran Reginald Hudlin will be the executive producer, in collaboration with Denys Cowan, who produced the much-missed animated series that Warner Brothers stubbornly left by the wayside years ago.

    The crisis of affordable housing over the next generation will be concentrated among renters. At the center of this crisis are low-income people of color living in urban areas. Households from these communities have been overrepresented among renters for decades, and in the recent housing market collapse, they have been disproportionately the victims of foreclosure and foreclosure-related evictions. Historically, these are also the same populations that have been uprooted from their homes and had their communities torn apart — by urban renewal in the post–World War II era and by…
  • More Regional Funding = More Local Transit

    16 Sep 2014 | 10:27 pm
    Urban Habitat and members of the Transportation Justice Working Group are fighting to increase regional funding to put more local transit service on the streets, particularly bus service for low-income communities of color, youth, seniors, and working class communities. In 2013, the 6 Wins for Social Equity Network won an amendment to the Bay Area’s Regional Plan (Plan Bay Area) that commits the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to developing a regional funding program to increase local transit operations. For over a decade, MTC and the region have prioritized rail and other…

  • Who We Be Examines the War on Multiculuralism

    21 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    “Color is not a human or a personal reality, it is a political reality.” – James Baldwin This is not a book review, because Who We Be isn’t really a book. It’s more of a thoughtful examination of how the United States arrived at this point in racial history. Long time friend of the blog Jeff Chang is the author of the American Book award winning Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation and editor of the anthology Total Chaos: The Art and Aesthetics of Hip Hop. To say we’ve been waiting for Who We Be is an understatement. But…
  • On DC Entertainment, Cyborg, And Going Back To The Afrofuture

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    By Arturo R. García DC Entertainment scored a rare PR victory over archrival Marvel over the weekend when it announced its upcoming slate of films. At first glance, this latest take on the DC movie universe instantly puts Marvel’s to shame when it comes to inclusion. But besides the far-flung timetable involved, it very much remains to be seen whether the company is willing to put in the work to elevate its non-white heroes to a position befitting their upcoming roles on the big screen. Here’s how the schedule looks, courtesy of Slate: Not only does this signal the long-awaited…
  • #GIA14: Racial Conversation as Performance Art

    Originally published at Grantmakers in the Arts The rules of the Long Table. Can a conversation about race be a performance? What does that simple framework shift do to the conversation? The answer: everything. The long table conversation is a fascinating thing to watch unfold. Participants come in and out as they please. There is snacking and scribbling, mostly on topic. Some people were determined watchers, setting up camp on the chairs on the far edge of the perimeter. And others eagerly queued up in the seats closest to the table, waiting for the moment they could tap someone on the…

  • New Stolen Generation in Australia: Children Removed and Abused

    With police focus on fine collections for `bankrupt` state governments and thus acting as a state government money collection force around Australia, and resulting deaths in custody of those who have been improsoned and abused for not paying fines, it seems not much has changed for Australia`s Original Peoples. And now, Black children are still being removed and communities systematically destroyed.  by Mathaba Media reports abound about a new stolen generation at the hands of Australia’s “neo-liberal” authorities as always in the name of care, concern, human rights,…

  • ‘Not Acceptable!’ Jada Pinkett Smith’s Stuntwoman Slams ‘Gotham’ For Blackface Controversy

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:46 am
    Eagerly anticipated FOX TV show Gotham debuted to strong ratings and critical acclaim earlier this fall. But now, RadarOnline.com has learned, the primetime drama is coming under heavy criticism — and even accusations of racism — after a white actress’ face was reportedly painted black so she could double for an African-American actress. On the heels of the scandal, Jada Pinkett Smith’s stuntwoman is speaking out exclusively to Radar about the sticky situation — and why she says it still has not been resolved. Earlier this month, Deadline published an explosive article slamming…
  • Religion from a foreign exchange student

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:39 am
    One time, at my partner’s parent’s church, an old man asked if I was a foreign exchange student. And then later, as all the men stood at the front, and the women sat in their pews, and the young folks sat in the back, I felt my short hair, I was aware of my short dress, I felt suffocated and nervous. I always feel that way in churches, as though I’m about to be exposed. I did not grow up in a church, and I remember being a child and people would ask…why, why, why. Parents of my friends would shake their heads “the poor girl.” But the person who bullied me the most in middle school…

    I could say “I told you so”, but I have to wait until he destroys America first. The White House intended to remain silent about its plans for immigration. Revealing a scheme to open the floodgates of amnesty would be disastrous on the eve of the critical midterm elections. But this is the gang that can’t shoot straight. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, rightly and accurately denounced enabling Haitians awaiting…

  • Democracy & American DREAMers: DACA & Undocumented Latino Youth

    Maria Chavez
    13 Oct 2014 | 6:24 am
    TweetImmigration—particularly undocumented immigration—continues to be an unresolved issue in America; however, it is part of the larger unresolved issue of the political and social inclusion of Latinos (as well as other visible racial and ethnic groups) in the U.S. It is an issue that will increasingly affect us all because of our changing demographics with Latinos at 16.9 percent of the population projected to be 30 percent of the population by 2050 at the latest. This lack of inclusion is underscored in a new book my coauthors, Jessica L. Lavariega Monforti and Melissa R. Michelson and…
  • Whiteness and Global Academia: Sociological Observations

    Joanna Tegnerowicz
    12 Oct 2014 | 7:07 am
    TweetI have recently taken a look at the list of the current board members of the International Sociological Association Research Committee on Labour Movements. I was convinced that the composition of the board would reflect, at least to some extent, the diversity of the global sociological community and the fact that labor movements are a global phenomenon. To my utter surprise, I immediately realized that there was not even one Black African scholar among the sixteen members of the board. And, even more strikingly, the Africa Regional Representative is a white woman from the University of…
  • Spanish in the US: Racialization (Part II)

    José Cobas
    10 Oct 2014 | 5:14 pm
    TweetVictorious intruders often justify their actions by playing up their self-defined probity vis-à-vis the supposed wickedness of their victims. White settlers in the 19th Century Southwest were no exception: they held an undisguised contempt for Mexican citizens residing in the region. Their attitude was couched in the language of race and they referred to Mexicans as “niggers” and mongrels. One of the “racial” traits that “tainted” Mexicans was their language. In the aftermath of the 1848 Mexican-American War, the eradication of Spanish became an important goal of whites in…

  • Cotswold denied AGAIN

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:31 am
    When are they going to give up?The city's Planning Commission on Wednesday night denied a controversial 41-unit condominium development in the woods northwest of Danbury High School. The proposal was voted down 2-1 after neighbors raised concerns that the development would increase traffic congestion and worsen the flooding of Padanaram Brook. The project by Cotswold of Danbury proposed ranch-style condominiums clustered on 20 acres of the oblong 74-acre property. The remaining 54 acres -- much of it wetlands -- was to be given to Danbury as open space. Although the plan to cluster the units…
  • Why do Mark Boughton and the Danbury GOP hate women?

    24 Sep 2014 | 8:08 am
    You have to wonder what was going through the mind of Mark Boughton and his ilk at the Danbury Republican Town Committee as they prepare for their lovefest with one of the most divisive, iditoic members of the Tea Party, the nortorious Allen West. By giving their blessing to the former Congressional clown from Florida, it's safe to assume that Boughton and the party of hatred and deceit are in agreement with West's attitude towards women.
